“I went to the University of California, San Diego to double major in Economics & Psychology with a minor in Accounting. I’ve lived in California and New York. I work in analytics at a technology startup while modeling at a big agency. Outside of weightlifting, I love yoga, swim, and, I tend to travel every other month.”

Mikkoh on coming out & life as a gay man:
“Coming out wasn’t easy, mostly because of the pressure that I put on myself. My family and friends were all very supportive. I came out at 22 and I can say that it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life.
New York is a very single city. Everyone is looking for the next best thing and that’s a difficult part of being gay here. There are many parts of the gay lifestyle such as parties, saunas, and gay dating apps that I don’t partake, but I am a very open person. I don’t shame anyone for doing what brings them happiness.
My favorite part about being gay is that I have a community that I know will have each other’s back when times get rough.”
